Forecast: Showers Stop & Temperatures Tumble
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Did you enjoy yesterday's mid-80s? Might that have been the last 80-degree day of 2009? Hard to say. But it's easy to say that daily highs will mostly stick in the 60s for the next 5 days as a much cooler pattern establishes itself over the region. But for the few lingering showers this morning, the pattern will also be pretty dry -- at least through the middle of next week.
Today (Saturday): Behind the cold front that charged through the region overnight, cooler air will steadily stream into the region. Today's high temperatures will probably end up being at midnight last night, as temperatures remain steady in the upper 60s to around 70 during the day. A few morning showers are possible (40-50%), especially south and east of town (60% chance), before some partial clearing in the afternoon. It will become breezy with winds from the north at 10-20 mph. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Partly cloudy and cool overnight as high pressure begins to build over the region. Lows will range from the mid-40s in the cooler suburbs to near 50 downtown. A light breeze from the north will blow at around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast for tomorrow and into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): Get out and enjoy what should become a picturesque, crisp fall day. Scattered morning cloud cover should decrease as the day wears on, and it will feel nice and comfy in the afternoon sun as temperatures reach the mid-to-high 60s. We'll have a light breeze from the west at 5-15 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: It will probably be the coolest night of the fall thus far. Under clear skies and light winds, temperatures will drop all the way down into the upper 30s in the outer suburbs with mid-to-upper 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Expect beautiful, autumn weather for Columbus Day. After the cold morning start, temperatures will rise to the low-to-mid 60s under sunny skies. Confidence: Medium-High
A weak frontal system will pass through the area Monday night and Tuesday. A few showers are possible (30% chance) late Monday night as temperatures drop down between 45 and 50. On Tuesday, it will likely become partly sunny and breezy, with brisk highs in the mid-60s. Confidence: Medium
